Statistic show white & latino women are twice more likely to be domestic abuse victim, your thought?
According to the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs: Of the 42% incidence of domestic violence where race was recorded, 1,211 or 44% were white, 684 or 25% were Latino, 413 or 15% were of African descent, 153 or 5% were Asian/Pacific Islander, 125 or 4% were multicultural; just under 36 or 0.01% were indigenous/first people and about 0.01 were Arab/Middle Easterners, Jewish and others.
Each of us (chooses) our own friends, lovers, and spouse.
It's not about who one attracts as much as it is who (they) are attracted to.
If these statistics are indeed true then it says more about the culture of where these women and abusers live than anything else.
I don't believe just because a woman is white or Latino that the (color of her skin) alone will dictate her odds of being abused.
Either she has few options to choose from when it comes to relationships or marriage or she simply has not learned how to detect the signs her mate might have violent tendencies.
In most instances verbal abuse precedes physical abuse.
Ignoring "red flags" like yelling, cursing, name calling, punching holes in walls, throwing things across the room, slamming doors, destroying one's personal property, forbidding one to associate with friends or family, threats, obsessive & jealous behavior are the usual precursors to being hit. Recognizing signs and walking away early is best.
Believing someone is going to "change" is a big mistake!

Domestic abuse and violence, towards men...It gets talked about, but how many men are willing to raise an arm and say they suffered any abuse, its yet another taboo subject that can quite easily be swept under the carpet.
